  • Can’t wait for this. They turned over the rugby at half time for the Soccer here in Antibes

  • I’m very keen to see if we’ve learnt from the mistakes made in the first game.

    Phepsi, Fez, Mchunu and Mchunu, Richardson, Hendrikse, Bholi, Kok and Louw all showed a lot of heart. I’d like to see Libbok or Chamberlain starting at 10.

    If we can hold onto the ball more, and provide more security at the rucks, then I think we’ll be way more competitive. Our scrums were good and our lineouts just needed a bit of work.

  • Man! Centre pairing looks LIT! And Lionel Cronje, thats a surprise, but what did Curwin expect? I expect Richardson to have a great game, and Kok totally deserves to be there again. Hope the wings get some ball in space (one can hope)

  • The referee (and AR’s) were very lenient on the Lions on the offside line and the breakdown. The Sharks will have to figure out some ways to deal with that, because I don’t expect the refs to change their approach.

  • Lourens Adriaanse? Surely not the prop? Lionel Cronje is an experienced guy. Probably would have preferred to see Chamberlain start but I guess the team needs some experience.

  • This match begs the question – the Sharks have been selected because they were still in a bio-bubble. So does that mean all these other guys traveled with the team to Johannesburg?

  • I am also not entire convinced with the two tight heads in this squad. I am not judging them against the Lions front rows – those are hardened test players, but Herbst has not impressed in the Currie Cup so far while Mchunu still needs some experience. We need a tight head that is solid in the scrum.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 100) : personally it doesn’t discourage grievously injuring a star player of another team with one of your c stringers in the first 5 minutes. He’ll be suspended, no worries, amd 20 min later you are back at full strength

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 101) : there we agree 100%

  • @jdolivier (Comment 98) : haha… They scored 35 points in 20 mins. Not sure going back to 15 men after that would have made any difference.

  • @Pablo Dinero (Comment 104) : I think if you know you back to 15 after 20 the team will not drop mentally

  • @jdolivier (Comment 107) : no, but the game would still have been over as a contest

  • That was just kak defense, Watson breaks 3 tackles without any effort

  • Jaden unfortunately spoiled what was a great game up to then with a really stupid action.

  • Really want to believe that the score wouldn’t have been this bad if Jaden didn’t brain fart. Ah well, this team tonight gives me hope going forward in the currie cup. Just keep Bosch away from the field

  • Anyway the Sharks really arrived for the game, and plenty of positives. If the Sharks want to become a great team they will need to cut out the soft moments though.

  • Special mention to Dylan Richardson – he played like a man possessed. Made tackle after tackle and took the ball up strongly. Put Dan Biggar on his arse.

  • @jdolivier (Comment 102) : I think nowadays the c-grade player will face criminal action if it is that bad

  • If every Shark had the heart that Kok plays with, we’d be undefeated. I bloody love the bloke, he never ever gives up.
